Lake Bridgeport Fishing Reports

 

Lake Bridgeport Fishing Report from TPWD (May 11)

GOOD. Water normal stain; 68 degrees; 3.07 feet low. Lake Bridgeport is up about a foot after the recent rains and all boat ramps are open. The main lake is stained and the northern and southern ends are quite dirty. Threadfin shad are running the banks for their spawn. All species of fish are shallow along the banks looking for an easy meal. Try a shad type crankbait to reel these fish in. Blue herons are sharing their fishing spots, so watch and they will guide you to active fish. Sand bass are good moving back into the main lake, finishing their spawn. Slabs have been producing quite well. Crappie and largemouth bass are moving into their post spawn pattern. The southern end may still have some spawning fish though. Look for the crappie to return to summer time brush piles pretty quickly biting on minnows and jigs will rule. Getting some reports of catfish being caught shallow on cut shad. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
